NCA is most effective when working with families who share our commitments. Therefore, priority is given to these families in the admissions process. Each family and each student admitted to NCA is expected to exhibit a cooperative spirit. Parents and students should read the Parent/Student Handbook for a description of the School’s standards and expectations. The school only admits students who want to attend NCA. Negative attitudes about the Christian faith or the School will prevent admission. The student application, interview, previous school performance, behavior record and references are used to determine a student’s suitability for admission.
NCA expects students to maintain semester averages of 80 or above on current year and previous years’ report cards/transcript.
All students entering NCA in kindergarten through twelfth grade will be required to complete entrance testing. The purpose of this testing is primarily for accurate grade placement. If a student tests at an alternate grade level, the administration may make the appropriate grade level change (with parental consent) or may deny admission.
Kindergarten students (K5) must be five years old by September 1st in order to apply.
Preschool students (K4) must be four years old by September 1st in order to apply.
NCA reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone who would not thrive at this institution nor benefit from the education offered. It should be noted that our school exists because of Jesus Christ and for the glory of God. Our mission statement is that students would Believe, Defend and Proclaim the Truth of Jesus Christ which is the Holy Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. The administration also reserves the right to refuse to define the criteria or reasons when applications are not accepted. The status of all students is reviewed annually.
This is not a corrective institution; consequently, we ask that a child not be enrolled with the idea that we will reform him. We are here to work with the home, but not to take the place of parents who are experiencing difficulty with their child. If a student has been dismissed or expelled from another school, or has an extensive behavior record the student will usually be required to prove himself for one year before being considered for admission at NCA.
Attendance is a privilege at NCA. This privilege may be forfeited at any time if a cooperative spirit is not maintained in complying with the rules and regulations. If at any time a student or his/her parents do not demonstrate support for NCA, its policies or its biblical stand, the parents may be asked to take the child out of the school even though the child has not been an open discipline problem.
Before the first day of school, each of our students are required to have on file a Health Record listing all immunizations, diseases and illnesses. Immunizations must be dated and the form must be signed by a physician.
Parents sign at registration that they have read and are in agreement with the student handbook, including NCA’s Doctrinal Statement and Statement of Faith. Parents are responsible to make sure that their child understands the policies and abides by the policies.
Northside Christian Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, nationality or ethnic origin in its admission policies, or in the administration of its programs.
